Video Details

Watch full match highlights between FC Koln and Werder Bremen.

NARRATOR: The bottom two met in a basement battle. Both clubs winless. For coaches Peter Stoger and Alexander Nouri, the stakes are high.

Koln have planned to start with Bremen legend, Claudio Pizarro for the first time. Injured minutes before kickoff, Sehrou Guirassy stepped in.

And the young striker had his chances. Lots of them. And header here saved by Jiri Pavlenka.

Both teams have scored just three goals across match day's 1-8.

[INAUDIBLE] deal with a rare open for Werder Bremen V in a tight first half. The striker yet to score for his new club.

Pizarro's ill fortune had been a hammer blow to Koln's plans for this crucial match.

A frantic open second half. So both teams show their lack of cutting edge. Maximilian Eggestein for Werder Bremen on 50 minutes. Konstantin Rausch on hand to clear.

The closing moments saw some great chances. None more so than this one for Guirassy. The young striker somehow failed to finish. He's never scored a goal in the Bundesliga. He will never, ever miss a chance as good as this.

His and Koln's luck was out, the kind of chance Pizarro would have relished.

And two minutes later, the same player. This time did hit the target and force a save from Pavlenka, as Koln tried but failed to find the crucial go ahead goal.

On 90 minutes Bremen put Koln under real pressure. [INAUDIBLE] had his shot tipped over the bar by Timo Horn at full stretch.

And seconds later, closer still, Thomas Delaney's header found Rausch in the right place to make a crucial is on the line for Koln.

And then right on the four tone whistle, Ludvig Augustinsson found space. The [INAUDIBLE] shot wide of the target, and somehow the game finished scoreless and both remained winless in the Bundesliga this season.
